What a wonderful early morning read!
I was showing my husband that he could get some ebooks from this site, (I spend most of my time in the Classic TV section) and ran across this little book.
I have had cats all my life and I have to say that from what I know about cats, this can't be too far from the way they think! What a wonderful little story to read early in the morning, and what an amazing change it has made in my day!
Thank you, uploader!

Two years ago I had to euthanize two kitties that were old friends of mine. Well One died from heartbreak and the other had to be "put down". This little book brought tears to my eyes thinking of them. Ilike to think that my kitties had as much fun (minus the soap barrel) and this one did. Cats are truly loving creatures despite their affected alloofness. They only exist to make us laugh and maybe draw us out of ourselves. I have a new little buddy but these letters could have come from mine.

A Most Eloquent Pussy Cat
Little Helen's Pussy tells the tale of her time when her owner was away, revealing how cats were often treated poorly back then. There's a rather shocking element to it that may be upsetting for younger children, but on the whole Miss Pussy reveals herself to be a dainty and dauntless cat.

Emily's Childhood Friend
Helen Hunt Jackon's mother penned the cat letters in the late 1830s.
See several references in the text to the Dickinson family; Emily's father, that is.
The author was very close to E.D. throughout life.
She bears looking-up--had a most interesting and vigorous life. A great woman.
